As someone who has the use of a legacy portable class c, I'll pipe up
very briefly: I tried. My useage has dropped to the point where I
don't really need it any more, so I got a non-portable block from my
hosting facility. It was on so many spam s**tlists that it was
unuseable, despite the fact that the spam feedback reports I was getting
were over a year old. I had to switch back and need to let the dust
settle (and users cool down) before trying again, if I should decide
that it's worth the effort to try a different one.
I *am* in the process of bringing up ipv6 though, fwiw...
